What is EN ISO 7010:2020

EN ISO 7010:2020 is an international standard that specifies the design principles and safety signs and signals used to indicate safety information and communicate potential hazards in workplaces and public spaces. It provides a harmonized, consistent approach to safety communication using symbols, pictograms, and colors.

The standard specifies the design principles for safety signs, including the shapes, colors, and graphical symbols used for each type of sign. One of the significant updates introduced in the EN ISO 7010:2020 standard is the use of a stronger green background color for safety signs than previously used. The standard also details the use of new symbols for fire safety, warnings for redundant machinery, and changes to the symbol meanings to enhance clarity, visibility and communication effectiveness.

EN ISO 7010:2020 provides a standardized set of safety signs and symbols that are understood worldwide, that help to establish consistency and clarity of communication regarding safety issues to operators, contractors, employees, visitors and bystanders. The standard provides guidance on the use of effective signalization systems, which is essential to improve safety in diverse workplaces and help prevent or reduce accidents or hazards.
